Red Potatoes Side / Bhaji

Grocery shopping is one of my chores every weekend. I like to plan my menu and get a week's worth of supplies. I find it hard to spare time to shop for groceries during the work week. Sometimes I miscalculate and at the end of the week I am left staring at an empty vegetable drawer. I try to compensate by soaking dry peas/beans but sometimes I forget. On one such Friday I realized that the only vegetables I had were potatoes and an onion. I had plenty of dried herbs so this was the result.

These potatoes are usually eaten for breakfast but I cooked them for lunch. They tasted great with poli.

You will need
4 small red potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1/4 small red onion, finely diced
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. ginger
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a saute pan. Add the red onion and saute for a few minutes. Add the potatoes and let them brown. Add the remaining ingredients and saute for a few more minutes.



  1. I love red potatoes.The bhaji looks flavorful and tasty.

  2. Thats an interesting and super quick bhaji..

  3. Guess potatoes taste great in all forms..even I have the problem of empty stock sometimes..sometimes overflowing with certain vegetables..I think sometimes I end up buying the same ones..however potatoes are always stocked!

  4. use of ginger here is unique but must have tasted delicious

  5. Love potatoes in every form and your version with the spices and ginger sounds delicious.

  6. Sometimes I am at the opposite end...I buy so many vegetables and then run around trying to finish them all before they get spoilt. This is a simple and .lovely potato dish
